"Our Sweet Boy" by Gwen Wruck

Hello again creative friends,  I hope you are all well!!  

Gwen here today to share with you a layout of our sweet kitten Ferris.



This layout started with the hexagon background cut file and some paper scraps in pink and yellow shades; I have been hoarding these forever and was on a mission to use them up.  I also had this cute little Crate paper element of a kitty cat and it was so cute I had to use it! I love pink and yellow as a colour combo, problem is, our cat is a boy!!!  This is one of those moments when you realise you have chosen colours because you like them and NOT because they fit your photo! - whoops!!  So... what to do??  Well, I thought, why not document his sweet nature.  He may be a boy but he is the sweetest, loving little thing, so affectionate and tolerant of Miss 10 who sometimes forgets he is a kitten!!  




As I often do, I went about building up my paper layers for my photo mat first and included one of the 5x7 paper bags,  these are always a great start to a page.  I simply added my paper scraps together until I was happy with my layers. I then went about looking for extra elements to round out the layout.  I found this sweet Journal pack piece from the Past Kit Bits section of the website which was the perfect yellow to match my pattern papers and I knew I also had this Sequin Bow in a really bright shade of yellow that would be a perfect fit. 


I also wanted to add some Wood Veneer - it's no secret that I love adding these elements to my pages, and I especially love the tone of the wood in the D-lish store, no need to add paint if you don't want to, they are perfect as they are.  I also had the co-ordinating Flair to the journal piece and the cute little Bitty Bow Clip - I simply slid it off the clip part to make an adorable bow tie for my kitty image. 




Next, it was time to add some flower clusters, I love the softness of the Fantasy Blooms and the Tea Roses are really nice to add into clusters for interest, they are the perfect sized smaller flower. To avoid any confusion with the whole "he is a boy" thing, I decided on the title "Our Sweet Boy" using the puffy Alphas and of course some Enamel Dots and that's the layout complete.

"Cool" by Julie Pearce

Hi everyone,


Julie here today sharing a page I have created using this months Just Add Paper Kit - Retro Revival.
I love all the bits and pieces that come in this kit.
I started off using the mini brick design stencil that came in the kit on my background.
Then cut two pieces of patterned paper for my corners and machine stitched them.

Using the yellow tissue paper and some pattern paper I layered it behind my photo.
Then I added the wood veneer title "Cool" and cut the journaling cards to use.
Added the resin stars and some black ink splatters and lastly the blue sequins stars.
I hope you get some inspiration from my page and give this challenge a go.

Catch you later.

"Love" by Jasmine Shea

Hello to you today.

I would like to share a page I created with so many D-lish goodies and I think one of my favourite colour combinations, green and yellow.  
It just makes me feel happy...corny I know but it's just bright and fun....how could you not feel happy?



Some close ups now to show off those wonderful pieces from D-lish Scraps.


 Here you can see I have used a stunning yellow Elegance Fabric Bloom ( I just love these flowers) and for that embellishment that can be used on any page, the ever handy, Flair Button
   
And here



a Paper Doily (I am obsessed with these doilies) and a cute little Bow .....
 I remember looking at Amanda Hartman's pages at one of our Scrapbooking Retreats and her use of D-lish embellies. I  remember thinking I could never add a "bow" to something and make it look good like she did. Well  now I get it, I can actually use a bow and it looks ok...lol.

Also on the page I have used some Washi Tape as a border between my different papers and some Punchinella to add that extra something to the layers.

So if you are stuck for your next page, what about using green and yellow and you will always find your embellishments at D-lish Scraps.

"Growing Up" by Anthea

Hi all. 
 
How are you all doing this lovely April day?  I come to you from out bush.  Yep - that is right!  I am currently enjoying a few weeks of camping on the Murray River.  OK - I am in town right now as I have to work tomorrow and the idea of having a camp shower at 7 in the morning isn't that appealing to me at all - so I thought I would take the opportunity to show you my latest creation. 

 
 
Now scrapping while camping is not a usual occurrence for me - and I am still not sure what possessed me to bring my supplies with me.  I am sure, however, that I am really happy with the result.
 
This whole LO was centred around that big number thing alongside the photo.  It was attached to a piece of wood on the wood pile and I became somewhat obsessed with using it on a LO.  A few of my fellow campers (a few = all but my hubby) thought I was verging on crazy and were certain that the wine had finally done it's job on me. 
 
Firstly I did my background - now being that this was done on a camp table with dirt underneath, I thought grungy was the way to go (just in case a gust of wind turned everything upside down).  I pulled out a couple of grungy D-lish stencils and used one with texture paste and the other with ink.  I then added enamel dots and epoxy stickers for colour.  I also added some teeny weeny star sequins and used tiny cut up bits of punchinella to add some more texture to the LO.
 
 
I then started on my clusters and had a bit of fun.  One of my non-scrappy friends was sitting with me when I was doing this and she suggested that I thread the wire through the punchinella and I went with it.  I told her I wouldn't credit her with the idea but I can't not - in all honesty it looks pretty cool all messed up in there - it also helps hold it down.  (A stapler would have worked just as well if I had that with me......).
 
 
You might be questioning the use of the Pokémon  flair button!?  I originally pulled it out because the colour was perfect for this LO - but in the end - I kept it there because this LO is about growing up and Pokémon was one of my sons favourites when he was a kid.  It just seemed to work.  The little chipboard boy and man were sprayed red to represent growing from boy to man (pretty deep stuff hey?).  The red star you can see poking out there and the tassel were added just because I like them (not so deep!).  The red star came from the clearance section but the Retro Revival kit has some cool red stars in it too if you are looking for any. 
 
 
I then added my title.  I used wood veneers for this and just painted them and inked them to get the look I was after.  (I do apologise to the bee that landed on these while wet - I don't think that the paint was very good for his poor little wings.) The arrows were thrown on at the last minute and I simply inked them up to suit the rest of the LO, they were from a past JAP kit.  (You can also see those cute little star sequins a bit better in this photo)
 
 
All in all, I am thrilled with how this LO turned out. I am still amazed that I achieved this with minimal supplies while out camping.  I hope you like my LO too and hope I have inspired you to get grungy. 
 
Till next time -take care.
 
Hugs.
Anthea

"To Mama" by Amanda H

 
 Hello to all our D-lish fans!

Today, I am sharing a simple page I did, one where I wanted to focus on the journaling and the photo, so I did some paints and stamps on the background. A few finishing touches with D-lish products... perfect as always.
 
Along the bottom of the photo, I glued a strip of scrunched tissue paper. This came from a past Just Add Paper kit, and is a simple and easy way to add a layer to a page. I also layered a lace doily behind the photo.
 

In this cluster you can see a few more elements, I have stapled some coloured wire along with some small off cuts of punchinella. Adding some flowers - including the new Fantasy Blooms, a sequin bow, and a jewelled cabochon.
 
 

A tiny cluster at the top for balance, and I have repeated a small cut of punchinella, a resin flower and another jewelled cabochon.
 
And as always, I do love to finish with a sprinkle of D-lish Dots- enamels!
 
 
Thanks for looking,
 
Amanda

"Silly Sisters" by Tamara Buckler

Hello all!!!

I'm so excited to be here to share my first layout for the D-lish Scraps design team! I have long been a lover of all the pretty embellies available in the D-Lish Shop and I'm so pleased I now to get to share my creations with you all.

I am a Mumma of two very happy, but very different, girls - so I am always pleased when I manage to get a good snapshot of them together. This layout features one such shot, which I converted to Black and White so that I could play with some Mixed Media to add colour in the background.



To add texture to the background, I used the stencil from the March 'pretty in pink' kit with some texture paste to add some grey dots to the background. I also used a diamond stencil from my stash.



I then used the 'packaging technique' to spread some watered down Dylusions paint, as well as some Colour Blast Shimmer paste, onto the background. I followed this with some random stamping with Black Staz-on ink, and some Hexagons cut from a Kaisercraft paper to draw the eye down the page.


I clustered all the pretty D-lish goodies to the right of the photo, focussing on the beautiful yellow Sequin Bow, as well as some Mini Roses in yellow, orange and white. I also added Enamel Dots, Resin Hearts for dimension, and a Journal-it Spot for a small amount of journaling. The 'sweet' love heart is from the Crate Paper Cute Girl range, and the banner from Cocoa Vanilla.



I hope you've enjoyed checking out my layout, and learning a little about my process and the pretty things you can buy from D-lish. I look forward to sharing with you again later this month.

Big Loves,
Tam x

"Together is a Beautiful place to be" by Julie Pearce

Hi everyone,

Julie here, today sharing my first layout as part of the new Design Team.

I am so excited to be joining this amazing team.



These pretty little peach Starflowers is what inspired me to create my page.

I started off using the heart of hearts stencil, and then using watercolours in a similar colour to the flowers for my background.


I then added a couple layers of paper and a doily to mat my photo.
I made a couple little flower clusters using those pretty peach Starflowersmini white roses and die cut leaves. And on my top cluster half of a small doily.



And I finished it off with those gorgeous Enamel Glitter dots.


I hope you liked my page and I look forward to sharing more.

not COOL mum! - by Nicolee Cable


Yahoo, hi family!
It's me and I'm delighted to be back on the 
design team for this term! 
I'm so excited to be here and (hopefully) inspiring you 
to create wonderful layouts again!

You'll notice that Gwen used this kit on her post on Sunday
and I love how the kits are so versatile that
 layouts look totally different while using the same 
embellishments.


I wanted to stick with the retro theme, so I used
a cork sheet for the background.  
Instead of just plain cork, I cut it
into diagonals and laid it like rough, old floor boards, just for
something different.  This was
my base which I then added embellishments from
the JAP kit.

Here are some close ups:
journal it's - spot


...the cute little sneaker charm

the star embellishment

cross stencil (red texture paste and then dimensional magic - seeing as
we're keeping with the retro theme!)

star embellishment.


I hope you enjoyed my take on this boy retro theme and I'd love 
to see what you come up with
over at The Scrap Suite on FB.


Take care my friends, happy D-lish shopping and 
I will see you around, until next time.

Nicolee xx
